Franco Italian Bistro's food is very good. I have gone there often in the past But this year I had a reservation for a Friday night and still wound up waiting in a doorway for 40 minutes. Obviously Reservations mean nothing.
This was a Birthday dinner for my sister. It was a bummer.

We wanted to go to a restaurant that we’ve never been to for New Years Eve. We made reservations on Opentable and selected the option for outdoor seating. Upon arrival,the owner wanted to seat us inside. Both tables he offered us were not acceptable. We insisted on sitting outside so he instructed the waiter to set up a table at the far end of the patio. No lighting and no heater . Mind you..it was early and most tables weren’t occupied.
He finally gave us an acceptable table. The owner was rude.
As for the food, we thought it was good but expensive. Nothing really special. We wouldn’t go back or recommend it to friends.
It just wasn’t anything special

Everyone seemed nice when came in. Waiter came over & we asked him for bread and he said sure and never returned with it. Took our drinks order and brought out. Then took our food order and brought out. A waitress came over and asked us if we wanted MORE bread and I said we never received out first request. She said didn't you get some bechetta and we said NO. Then she brought us both. When food was brought to us one of the orders was done wrong. And My husband asked for some linguini with his and it didn't come. Even though the waiter said it would be extra and we agreed to pay for it. It was not a memorable experience and we will not frequent this place again.

Phenomenal. Easily the best classic Italian meal I've enjoyed in this part of Florida. Very professional staff and superb food. The only complaint I had was that the owner insisted on smoking at the restaurant entrance which detracted from our dining experience. We don't like tobacco flavors with our food.

We enjoyed our meal so much that we made a reservation in two days to bring another couple. We enjoyed that meal also! I had egg plant and angle hair pasta. They were both delicious! I was amazed that the angle hair was served al-dente, just the way I love it.

We always love Franco’s & every time we bring friends or family there they feel the same. Never a disappointment. We had family visiting & our 92 yr old Janet wanted to go there. We gave her the choice of many places & she picked Franco. Everyone was extremely happy with everything! Delicious always!

We've dined here many times over the years. The food is usually delicious and very consistent. On our last visit the fish wasn't hot and the pasta was undercooked. The waitress was in a rush and kept interrupting us every time she came to the table. She also gave our check to another table and vice versa. We sat outside and the music was loud and not their usual genre. Not our most enjoyable dinner there and at that price point, paying the bill smarts a bit more when they have an "off" night.

We dine here with some frequency and believe it to be one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. The veal chop Parmesan is excellent, the appetizers offer great variety and the service is always excellent.

The service was very friendly and attentive at both the bar and in the restaurant. We enjoyed the generous drinks and delicious pizza as a before dinner appetizer and then moved on to a more than ample Summer menu which provided a fabulous salad or soup followed by portions that were both yummy and could not be finished.

It was great experience.

I have dined quite a bit there and noticed in the last several months food quality has changed for the worse, which is very disappointing and owner can be very obvious in front of a customer when speaking to their staff on rushing a table . Very disappointed in the last few outings there.
